Better manage planning and quote development throughout design, manufacturing, and after-sales service
Industrial equipment and machinery manufacturers produce some of the most complex products in the world, while faced with strict environmental regulations and global competition. Yet, the prices of those products are continually eroded. Customers want specialized products, but they want them commoditized to minimize maintenance and life-cycle costs. Successful industrial manufacturers need to better anticipate customer requirements while reducing the impact of these requirements during the conceptual-design and quoting phases.
